The Root Of All Good
What we smoke? The buds. And this is why we think about buds when trying to analyse the quality of future harvest of (hopefully) marvellous pot. We check buds, we apply actions to the buds, sharing photos of buds to friends, but wait… Where it starts from? The roots of course!
We often forget (yet it is very logical) that we must take care about roots all the time. And it may save you hundred potential dangers to the buds in future. Keep in mind that it is quite late to worry about the roots when your buds are already bad-looking. Start from the beginning: Roots are the reason for buds, and the buds mirror perfectly of what is happening to roots.
Attention given to roots is always worthy
1) Cannabis is originating as a desert plant, and it cannot apply too much moisture. Do not over-water it. From the other hand, keep an eye on the plant condition, not to make it dry. Having 1 inch of dry soil from top is considered to be a good environment.
2) Give proper nutrients. It’s all up to your personal choice whether it’ll be chemical ones or organic ones or your own poo, but just try following the NPK conception. In this “formula” the K (Potassium, or KALIUM in Latin) stands for the strength of the roots and consequently required from the start till the end.
3) Give it enough space to the roots. Cannabis is “weed” not only in slang wording, but it is also a weed by its nature. It has wide “network” of roots comparing to home indoor plants. And it’s better not to have few plants in one pot, to prevent their competition to each other.
